“Light” – Water & Roots #1

Posted on Wednesday January 17th, 2018

Water & Roots 5 (edit)

Erma Tabernacle is joining with nearly 200 churches in our Greater New Jersey Annual Conference as part of its Water & Roots series on rediscovering the Sacrament of Baptism.  This message, “Light,” is the first one and has been re-recorded from January 14 worship.  Please note, there is a reference to a video clip from the movie Apollo 13.  That clip is available in this blog post for your viewing.

If you have been baptized, then let me know what it means to you.  If you are interested in being baptized, then I’d like to hear your story as well.  Let’s have a conversation.

Daily Blessings,

Pastor Glenn ( / 609-600-7331)

“Newly Reconditioned” – 1st of 2018

Posted on Wednesday January 10th, 2018

Sermon Slide

Using Ephesians chapter 3, this re-recorded message from January 7 worship at Erma Tabernacle looks back at 2017 and visions forward into 2018.  “Newly Reconditioned” is both a stand-alone and a moving -ahead call to action.

I realize that several who cannot attend weekly worship view these videos.  Others who are not connected to Erma Tabernacle in any way also can see these messages.  My goal is that all can benefit.  If you have questions, comments, and/or feedback, shoot me an e-mail.

Conversation Starter,

Pastor Glenn

“The Gift” – The Christmas Puzzle (final)

Posted on Tuesday January 2nd, 2018

Here is the final message in The Christmas Puzzle series.  “The Gift” was originally presented on Christmas Eve at Erma Tabernacle.  Drawing from Matthew chapter 2, verses 7 through 12, this message connects all the “pieces” of the puzzle. In a post that follows this one is a message that I recorded but never presented […]

“The Prophecies” – Christmas Puzzle #3

Posted on Monday December 18th, 2017

The title of this message can go either way – Promises are Prophecies fulfilled, right?  “The Prophecies” is #3 in our Advent 2017 series – The Christmas Puzzle. Along with comparing Matthew chapter 2 with Micah chapter 5, there is a strong emphasis on the “single thread” of the 66 books of the Bible telling […]

“The Visitation” – Christmas Puzzle #1

During Advent 2017 at Erma Tabernacle we are offering a new series – The Christmas Puzzle.  The goal is for each of us to learn one new thing about the traditional seasonal story of Jesus’ Birth that we didn’t know before.  The first piece of the puzzle is “The Visitation,” re-recorded from December 3 worship.  […]

“Son Block?”

Posted on Tuesday November 28th, 2017

While I thoroughly enjoy offering sermon series, covering a single topic over several weeks, I also enjoy those “stand-alone” messages.  “Son Block?” is just one of those. Drawing upon Exodus chapter 34 and Second Corinthians chapters 3 and 4, this re-recorded offering from Erma Tabernacle’s November 26 worship celebration addresses the question, “What is holding […]
